Recovery Software for failing hard drives

I am looking to try one or more software applications on a few spare "bad" hard drives. These are drives with a growing number of bad sectors. CrystalDiskInfo marked the hard drive "yellow". What have people tried and worked well? I looked at Spinrite's website. Sounds impressive.

    Hi there donald73d'

    Maybe u have fluctuating electricity in the house and should get some protection like,

    CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series GreenPower UPS 1000VA 600 Watt 5 x 5-15R Battery/Surge protection.

  8. It keeps the electricity stable and if your HDD is writing and power goes haywire, this will save your hardware.

    Everybody should have at least $20 surge protector.
